Elgin American sterling silver guilloche enamel dance purse compact. The purse measures 2 1/8" x 1 5/8". It weighs 70.7 grams. The embossed chain handle measures 10" long. The front of the compact has a white guilloche enamel center decorated with hand painted pink roses. This is framed with light blue basse taille enamel. The sides of the compact have an embossed floral design. The reverse of the compact has an all over engine turned design. It is signed E.A.M. sterling for the Elgin American Manufacturing Company of Elgin Illinois. The purse has a push clasp that opens to reveal a gilt interior. The inner lid has a mirror. The base houses a powder well with used face powder and a lipstick holder with used lipstick. The inside has an embossed floral design. The mirror is cloudy. The gilding is very worn and the powder and lipstick are old and therefore unusable. The compact snaps tightly shut. The silver has a dark patina, I have not polished this, otherwise the outside of the compact is in excellent condition.
